Healing and getting better

So our little guy is doing better and better every day. My sister was telling me that the change in 3 days was huge. She had been here on Friday and came back to see him on Monday. As I post this he's playing in his crib. And he is becoming more and more my wee little boy I had before the surgery. I like that he's starting to be his cheerful self again. We still have a ways to go. He's not particularly interested in eating which means he might have to get his NG tube put back in. My poor skinny skinny little guy. We are hoping that in the next few days he will be transferred up to Bloorview so he can start his rehabilitation in earnest and can come home sooner rather than later. But overall he is doing well and his surgeon is pleased with him. So that's good.

A picture

I thought I would post up a photo of Munchkin. I took this a day ago.

A Munchkin Update

Apologies to all about the lack of updates about our wee Munchkin. He's been a snuggle monster and just wants to snuggle all of the time which doesn't leave much in the way of time to update the internets. He's doing reasonably well. He is very grumpy and would like to sleep all the time. He's also got a rather delicate tummy and wants to throw up at least once a day. He is slowly getting better. Today he was giggling a little at the bubbles his therapist was blowing.

It's Weird Without Munchkin

Tonight Munchkin is in the ICU and it's really strange not having him in the house. He's doing well the last we saw him before we came home. He was asleep with some buddies watching over him. It was a stressful day, but my Munchkin seems to be doing very well and we're so grateful it went well. Sophie, Hudson and Bunny are watching over him tonight.

Surgery a success

We just spoke without surgeon and the surgery was a success. So we can see him in about half an hour.

Today's the Day

We've just left out little Munchkin in the good hands of his surgeon. And now we wait and worry the whole time.

Munchkin goes on a Bike Ride

Today Munchkin went on his first bike ride. He road with me in the Ride for Heart. Super early this morning we packed him up in the bike trailer and off I went to do the ride with the team from my office. For those that don't know, Ride for Heart is an annual event in Toronto where the Gardner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway are closed for the morning so riders who have signed up and done fundraising for the Heart & Stroke foundation can ride up and down the highway that is usually congested with cars. You also have a choice of three distances, 25k, 50k or 75k. This year we did the 25k. I thought that 50k would be too much for the little munchkin and well for me since I haven't really done much in the way of bike riding this spring. Munchkin did pretty well. He had a little meltdown when we got onto the Don Valley from the Gardiner. The helmet was pretty heavy on his head and his head kept flopping forward. Once we had a little snuggle and he calmed down, I got him rearranged with some blankets so his head would stay upright and comfy. He promptly fell asleep and stayed that way for the rest of the ride. All in all it was a good ride. I managed to raise $1378 for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. This was the best year yet for donations. It was so wonderful to be able to bring Munchkin with me this year. It's become an important event for me to take part in because of him and this year especially so because I wanted to do something in honour of his honorary grandfather Charlie who passed away this past March from heart issues. Munchkin's Mom. PS. I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
